    If it is an Intel chipset, try the general Intel driver for the WiFi

      http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/si...id=HOME-LENOVO Use the Auto-detect this system button.
      There T41 and a T41P. The T41 has 2 different Types. The T41P has 7 different Types and who knows how many models in each.

      Totally lacking the appropriate information to find you the correct driver. I sugget the Auto-detect button.
      1 1 was a racehorse.
      2 2 was 1 2.
      1 1 1 1 race 1 day,
      2 2 1 1 2

        Wow ! Glad to see a ThinkPad user. Cheer's. I am a ThinkPad user too.

        Alright alright lets come to the solution > Go to Lenovo's web site. Click on "Drives download" line at main page, Specify your ThinkPad model, hey hey hey write down the whole product name including Thinkpad T 41 UR 4 or whatever series it is. make sure you dont miss those MU , RU numbers which are too important to get right drivers. And specially beware if you are going to install updated BIOS for your ThinkPad. If you specify accurate info, there is always perfect driver set for us
        . Like mine ThinkPad model is > ThinkPad R50e 1834 EQ 1

        Before downloading any driver, i specify all these numbers & letters to get correct product page.

        Regards,
        Amey .

          Bigless, how would i use the Browser if i don't have a network existing ?
          this issue was not with the WIFI but with the LAN.
          anyway the driver on LENOVO does not work,
          but i solved this issue with going to WWW.INTEL.COM
          and downloaded the main PRO 100 Driver from there.

            I think you should have a read at that again.

            You don't have an internet connection because your LAN doesn't work but you managed to download and install the drivers from intel.

            If you managed to download the drivers using WIFI then you could have followed Biggles instructions.

              No, i used another computer to download the drivers.
              moved them with Disk on key.

              All done.
              Thanks & Regards

                Now you can use the "Auto-detect" bit and see if your drivers are up-to-date.
